    Im a waitress in Los Angeles. Today I used to be serving a desk of 9 company and they have been having a party for his or her father. The desk complemented me a number of occasions about how “sweet” I’m. I genuinely loved serving this household as a result of they have been simply fantastic individuals! I hope that they had a terrific night time.

    Anyways, earlier than they left they requested for the supervisor to cease by their desk. They informed him that I used to be a terrific server and I felt honored. Once my supervisor left, one of many girls pulled me apart and handed me $40. She mentioned that she needed to ensure that I acquired the tip and then thanked me as soon as once more. It was so type of them. Once they left, my supervisor made me hand him the tip and he added it to our tip pool. I attempted to inform him that the desk insisted it goes to me however he informed me “I feel very bad but this is company policy.”

    Since I’m a brand new server, I solely get about 10% of my share of ideas. In order to get 100% of my share of ideas, I need to “earn it” by his judgement. My first few days, I truly didn’t get any ideas. So tonight, I went dwelling with a complete of $16 in ideas whereas everybody else acquired a LOT extra. Yesterday I solely acquired $10. That harm.

    I nonetheless recognize these form people who I waited on and the truth that they tried to present me a beneficiant tip for myself was sufficient to make me completely happy. I’m simply not tremendous excited at my supervisor proper now. Ugh!




    Leave. Go get one other job, in case your entirety of your wages depend upon how your boss is feeling at that exact second then its not a secure earnings. Find one thing with constant pay.



    Fuck your supervisor. These insurance policies must be unlawful.



    Find a distinct job!



    I’m undecided how your tip pool works, but when the supervisor is getting any of it, it is patently unlawful. I recommend you file a grievance with the Department of Labor. California does not take kindly to one of these factor.

    It’s additionally your proper to debate the tip pool and the supervisor’s habits along with your coworkers. Now, granted, a nasty supervisor will not cease being a nasty supervisor even when it is unlawful. But, you need to discuss along with your coworkers about this.



    Fuck your supervisor. Go shit of their espresso.

    Edit: eliminated the /s lmao



    I’ll move money to a server for a similar causes that celebration did. If I came upon you boss did that, I’d by no means ever go there once more. His “policy” is utter bullshit. Dump that place as quickly as you’re able.



    I might report this to the labor division and discover one other job. You’re mainly paying them to work there. Fuck that.



    In CA, if an individual desires you to have the tip particularly then it doesn’t go within the pool,



    I’d begin making use of to different jobs and hopefully yow will discover someplace that can extra recognize you!
